If you are a frequenter of the blog here, you might know that I’m a massive nerd when it comes to video game soundtracks. As well as official game music, I also love to find fan-made music from talented creators. One of my absolute favourites that I came across recently comes from a YouTuber by the name of Kibo, who has created a ton of awesome fan-made songs for Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Kibo isn’t the first to create fan-made themes for Super Smash Brothers but theirs particularly caught my attention due to how well that each piece of music would slot into Super Smash but also how great of a cover each song is in regards to the original source material too. There are general covers- such as an amped up version of “Sayonara” from Doki Doki Literature Club– and creative interpretations of music too- such as a mashup of “Asriel’s Theme” and “Megalovania” from Undertale.
Kibo has also taken on music from game franchises that exsist within Super Smash Brothers Ultimate– such as Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario- as well as other games that would make amazing additions to the Nintendo game- such as Undertale (I mean a little more involvement than just a Mii Fighter costume), Okami and Five Nights at Freddy’s. I feel like the chosen games would work so well in Smash and Kibo’s musical themes fit the game perfectly too.
